The Bible appears to be associating GENERATION with the CHURCH. Thus generation to generation would be pointing to the existence of the body of Christ over time. And when we consider the gospel in the proper context, generation to generation can point to God’s judgment on the body or His mercy in bringing about a new generation from the evil one that is Babylon.
